|About me:||What do you want to know? I read alot! Fiction (Mainly main stream),mystery, dog stories ( If theres a dog in the mystery - winner winner chicken dinner. Unfortunately there are too many bad dog mysteries). Some non- fiction, but if it's a dog storie well then you know!|
|Reading Interests:||See above! Everything or anything that catches my interest. Ficton, Non-fiction, mysteries, love stories ( not bodice rippers). If a book's cover catches my eye, and the blurb catches my interest, I'll go to the library and see if it's avaliable. Plus different people will recommend different things. Some are hits and some are totally wrong. My search for new and different things to read is a journey. Through 15 - 20 different Sunday book reviews, and different librarys and book clubs to find new and different opinions about books. And to I'll go to different author's web sites, to see what they have been reading.|

by Farnsworth, Christopher

Let me start by saying. This movie lived up to the hype around it. It is not for the faint of heart. The action is brutal,the language is rough, and the realism is off the scale. A clockwork orange is a fairy tale in comparion. posted Oct 14, 2011 at 11:48AM
|Child 44 /|
by Smith, Tom Rob.
In Stalin's ear Russia, people disappear all the time. They either move to the larger city to find work, or simple disappear ( One way goverment retirement plan). In this time people are being killed in the percullier way. It becomes obvious to one agent that there is a murder ( now we would him a serial killer) on the loose. Unfortunately in the utopia of Russia - there are no crimes of this degree. posted Oct 6, 2011 at 3:19PM

by McClure, James, 1939-2006.
I have to take my hat of to the author of this well written book. The way the murder weapon was thought up, is nothing short of brillant. He also showed a very real look at race relations, or lack there of in South Africa. posted Sep 20, 2011 at 2:47PM

|poohbubba's Book Lists|
|International Mysteries (79 titles)
Mysteries from around the world. You'll note that there are some titles and authors that are missing ( Example Stig Larson & Alexander McCall Smith). There is a very good reson for that. I have tried to read thier stuff, and to be perfectly honest with you. I could not throw thier work ( if you want to call it that) far enough away!
|Mysteries with a good twist (83 titles)
A wide selection of some really good mysteries around the world.
|When insanity grabs you, and makes you do stupid things (58 titles)
June 1, 2010 Okay, I'll admit that I was not a great student when I was in high school. I was a horrible student, and I didn't read any of the books I should have. So now that I am 48, I have planned to read everything I should have read 30 years ago. Am I insane, lost my mind - YES! So I am going to read all of these within a year - seriously! May 10,2011 Just finished the last book. Will I ever do this again - NO! July 28th, 2011 Will be re-thinking this list some will be gone,and other's put on. will keep you posted! Here's what we're going to do. I found a web site for the 100 best reads of all time( a little pompus for my taste, but we're getting off the track here) & The 100 best characters in fiction since 1900. So I am going through both lists combine them and come out with a new list for a year of reading. So I'll keep you posted!
